The immigration debate in America

As part of Northeastern’s edu­ca­tional series on civic sus­tain­ability, a trio of North­eastern scholars led a dis­cus­sion on immi­gra­tion issues in the U.S. from a legal, philo­soph­ical, and crim­inal jus­tice perspective.


3Qs: Examining the dynamics of drug violence

In recent months, more reports have sur­faced of esca­lating vio­lence involving drug car­tels in parts of Mexico. We asked Ramiro Mar­tinez Jr., a pro­fessor in the School of Crim­i­nology and Crim­inal Jus­tice and the Depart­ment of Soci­ology and Anthro­pology at North­eastern, to examine the cur­rent dynamic amid the Mex­ican drug vio­lence plaguing these regions. As a quan­ti­ta­tive crim­i­nol­o­gist, Martinez’s research looks at how vio­lence varies across eco­log­ical set­tings, and if vio­lent crimes and vio­lent deaths vary across racial and ethnic groups.
